I am wearing this third pair of these shoes that I have owned over the last 10 years for 6 months now and can tell you with confidence, these are the best boat shoes made. The most comfort, the best materials and very consistent. I have wide feet (EEE) and the WW in this model is wide and stable. I live in coastal Texas and boating and water is our way of life. These shoes handle what you throw at them and come up smiling. 100% quality.

I found very little arch support in these shoes. The soles are stitched on in such a fashion that the stitching is exposed to the elements on the bottom of the shoe. A design / construction concept that I could not accept because the stitching would not be durable enough and the shoe would come apart if the exposed stitching degraded by exposure to the elements.

Great shoes in appearance and construction. Unfortunately, the narrow is too wide for my B foot. I'm returning them.

The Perth is the best boat show ever made! It was off the market for several years. I spent three years trying to find my 12N's on the Internet and was not successful. Prior to that I had worn Perth's for almost 20 years. It's pricey at this price but worth very penny. The comfort, style and wear-ability.

This is Rockport's best boat shoe. I bought a pair years ago from a clearance shelf at an outlet store, and although a bit worn, are still sturdy and comfortable. I was thrilled to see them back in the catalog again and snapped up a pair immediately.

I'm really happy with these shoes. I originally ordered the Women's Sebago 8 1/2 W but they did not fit like a wide shoe. I exchanged for these Rockports in a Mens 6 1/2 EE and they feel great.

After a short while of breaking it in, and molding it to your foot, it's really quite damn comfortable--just like a slipper. Only complaint is that it appears the sole is comprised of 2 layered pieces, so over time the layers separate.

A very comfortable shoe that lasts. I weigh about 225 lbs and this has been the most comfotable shoe that I've owned. I've made the mistake in the past of buying the look-a-likes only to have them fall apart and lack the comfort and support that these have. They are worth the extra price.

These are excellent shoes! They look good and are comfortable. Because they are made by Rockport, they are especially good if one is going to walk miles and miles. This is my second pair and I put about a zillion miles on the first pair. I like to work out, but on holidays I usually substitute long sight-seeing walks for a run. I recommend Rockport Perths most highly!

Great shoe for a narrow foot - I bought these for my husband who has trouble keeping slip ons on his very narrow feet. He loves them! They look great and he says they are very comfortable. We will definitely shop Zappos again.

15 years wearing Rockports - I've worn Rockport Perths for 15 years and I hope they never stop making them! They're the only shoe I've ever owned that feels comfortable the first time you put them on. I use them for work because I'm a sailor who wore deck shoes before, but don't like the white soles common to the old Topsiders or Timberlines. I wear these shoes for 12 to 16 hours daily on work days and buy a new pair every year. It's the best $100 investment you can make for your feet. Due to not having fabric interiors, I can go without socks like in the old days. Why? Because I can!

Brands I'd also recommend: the Rockport Manchester - same shoe different style

My husband will wear no other shoe. He always has three pair at a time. One for getting dirty in, one in medium condition for everyday, and one for "dress" with khakis. Don't think he could live without them and has had boat shoes all his life. These are the ones that he enjoys wearing for comfort more than any other brand that he has tried in over 45 years.

Brands I'd also recommend: None, this Rockport seems to have the most comfortable and well cushioned sole.

Great Shoe good company - I have had these shoes for 10 years. I had them factory resoled once with the original sole. They have been wet, muddy and I have fallen overboard with them. I don't boat anymore but I have them on now. They are getting raggy and I am going to buy another pair. The sole delaminated once and the factory replaced them.

Best of its kind I too have owned about 5 pairs of these. I typically buy two pair at a time in case they stop making them. There simply is no equal to these shoes. Nothing else has the cushioned midsole of this shoe(like a running shoe). Others try to make due with a cushioned insert. It can't match the comfort of this shoe- amazing!

Rockport Perth I have owned 5 pair of these shoes. They are still my favorite. The first pair I had lasted for over 2 years of every day wear. All others have done the same. Great shoe.

Three Miles A Day For Eighteen Months! I am an obsessive walker. I used my last pair to walk all of these miles. Figure it out! 3 times 365 times l.5 equals 1542.5 miles! The lightweight design made the shoe unbelievably comfortable. I bought a new pair last week. I use them for work and for walking. This is an absolutely wonderful shoe!

Brands I'd also recommend: I am simply not knowledgeable about other Rockport shoes.

Great comfort. After trying other styles and brand of casual shoes (and much foot pain!), I decided to try these. I've worn them every day for over a year, in all weather and terrains and absolutely love them. I've had no problems with these shoes and the foot pain is gone. I highly recommend them, even if you're on your feet all day long.

Buy them! Bill from Winston-Salem, NC is wrong! These are quite simply the most comfortable and hardest wearing shoes I have ever owned. I'm on my second pair and I can't recommend them highly enough. If you want a deck shoe these can't be beaten.

I wear a 10.5 EEE and ordered the 10.5 XW (supposed to be 4E). Nice fit and feel. Switching looks sharp too. Hard sole, but that seems to be the case with most boat shoes - similar to Sperry's. They're a keeper!

I have purchased two pair of these. I have had problems with the soles delaminating on both. I like the way they look and they are reasonably comfortable bur I wouldn't ever buy them again due the sole. They also have no traction on smooth wet surfaces. But, that not a problem with a deck shoe is it?
